    Thought it was time to say hi. I found ZooChat after watching the Chester Zoo drama, Our Zoo, and I was looking online to see how factually accurate it was.

    I am an annual member of Marwell (since July '14) and have recently visited Bristol, with plans for Twycross, Colchester and hopefully Paignton before membership year ends.

    I've lost many many hours reading the forums here about the zoo's I've visited or planned to visit, so this post is to say thank you for the wealth of information you share. :)

    Hi this is my first post reply, not sure yet how this communication system works. I am a long retired zoo/wildlife park keeper/manager. Doing some voluntary work for 'Bear Conservation' seeking information about which British Zoos which still keep bears and need details of their accommodation and care etc along with photos.

    Any info helpful: thanks Doc Rob
